after me. and i am happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and the besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> brian: well, that was his confrontational tone i can remember him having outside of the election and had his first press conference. she appeared on behalftime white house. how dumb was it to put out there nothing with benghazi and no background as opposed to tom brennan or tom donald or anybody else let alone david petraeus and hillary clinton. so you put somebody out there and that was your fault that got the information and we don't know whose opinions and conclusion and the president wants to call out the people who just want answers. >> gretchen: sorry, i thought you were -- >> brian: senator graham and john mccain heard this and this is what they said. >> i will hold her accountable and she volunteered for the assignment. she is incompetent when comes to benghazi and the person i blame the most is the president. my resp
that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups th
. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on benghazi kicks off at the top of the hour. in 20 minutes, kong hand ed royce who chairs the subcommittee on answers he is look for. we'll talk to him coming up here on "america's newsroom". gregg: hurricane sandy blamed on a big increase in weekly jobless claims. the number of americans filing for jobless benefits jum
-class americans are not hurt. zoraida? >> let's move on to the heated back and forth over u.n. ambassador susan rice. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham say they would actually try to block rice from being promoted to secretary of state should she be nominated. they are criticizing her over the statement that she read days after the deadly benghazi attack saying they were spontaneous and s stemmed from a protest over an anti-islamic film. so why is the gop going after rice? >> well, because, you know, they feel she was the face of the administration at the time and the narrative that she laid out at the time simply did not turn out to be the case. so they don't believe, john mccain and other republicans, don't believe that the information that's been put out there has been very accurate and they don't believe that it adds up. take a listen. >> well, first of all talking points came from the white house, not from the dni. second of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. and she continued to tell the world
.com. ♪ campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >> when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. megyn: that was president obama yesterday defending u.n. ambassador susan rice for her response in the days following the terrorist attack in benghazi in what has now become one of the largest conflicts for his administration, at least on the terrorism front. the president's remarks yesterday raise new questions over the conflicting accounts from the white house about the deadly attack. here's why. on september 11th, four americans were killed -- you know that now -- in our consulate in benghazi, including our ambassador. it was a terrorist attack. on the 16th of september, five days later, ambassador rice went on five sunday shows, including fox news sunday, and suggested that the attack was linked to an internet video. >> best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo
centered on the u.n. ambassador susan rice. but her public role in controversial statements in the wake of the failed benghazi attack that left four americans dead could make potential confirmation process through the senate a rocky one. it's no secret senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in the job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. with democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to enter the possibility of losing a senate seat if he wants john kerry badly enough. >> treasury secretary tim geithner has also expressed his desire to return to private life. but with key tax cuts set to expire and sequestration looming his departure is likely to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner have put a lot of energy in to the issues, related to the fiscal cliff. they are going to want to see it through. >> the same is likely through of defense secretary leon panetta who pleaded with congr

aligned, by the way, with the u.n. but they come from about 63 to 68 different countries, and you have to remember that texas and iowa and pennsylvania said stay away from our polling places or else. but many other places they were welcomed, and after watching our election process, their takeaway was: astonishment. i mean, they were amazed that most u.s. states don't require voter id. they were confused about why there's no uniform system that each state kind of does its own thing, and they were puzzled by provisional ballots. that's where you walk in, and if your name's not on the voter rolls, you still have eligibility to vote, and then they check your status later on, if ever. they also commented on the lack of police presence at polling places, and they wondered how it is we keep people from sending in numerous ballots when you have mail-in ballots, and many, of course, have wondered the same thing. keep in mind, many of these observers come from countries where you give a thumb print to actually prove that you're a voters, you know, fingerprinted. and in gambia, megyn, they give y
